Once again The Quays, Newry are principal sponsor of the festival. Mr Cathal Austin,  Manager The Quays, Newry, has spoken of his delight at being  involved in the 2017 Newry Drama Festival. 

"From 2004 we have developed a long-standing relationship with Newry’s leading annual cultural event, show-casing the very best of Amatuer Drama North and South of the Border.  

"We extend a very warm welcome to those Drama Societies, from across the island, who will entertain our avid Festival goers."
